A Thank You To My Readers

 

 

Are you on my list?  Following on from yesterday’s post I would now like to thank everyone who has visited, read and commented on my blog posts during 2012.  I was thinking maybe I could create a list, like Sergio did.  Then I realised just how much work it took!  Not that you are not worth the effort of course.

So who has helped me progress in 2012?  There were a couple of great pices of training I did during the year, both helped me enormously to move forward with my online business.  The most prominent was David Walker’s 30 Day Marketer training.  It is a superb eye opener and something every marketer can learn from.  I was then introduced to Gavin Mountford’s Networking Superstars, which in itself is not so much training as an opportunity to mix online with like minded marketers through weekly hangouts, but shortly after I joined the hangouts Gavin produced a piece of training called Tribe Traffic Mastery, and he has more excellent training in the pipeline.

So I decided to acknowledge the people who have nelped me in any way during 2012 by creating this post.  There have been a number of advantages to this.  Firstly in my efforts to list and link all my commenters it allowed me the opportunity to get rid of broken links and links that went to error pages or blogs that were no longer ‘live’.  So below you have the ‘clean’ version of all the people who commented during 2012 including a link to their blogs.  It would be great if you could visit a few of them and let them know you dropped by from here.  They would really appreciate it, I know.

So thank you to my readers – here you are:

    Hi Mandy!

    How I missed this post i do not know, and thanks for adding myself to the list!

    Sorry it took this long to find it, which I did of course from your Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/LearnToBlogWithMandyAllen/

    I have asked to join that too, even though i thought I had before! Scatter brained at times lol.

    A lovely idea for a post, and one that should be copied I feel…. I shall try to get this into a schedule somewhere…. Perhaps as an anniversary post perhaps?

    Regarding what you have managed in the year 2012 – and The networking superstars, as I am a member in there, and remember when you joined…. and where you are now, a great success story of yours inside that organisation.

    For anyone who does not know Mandy is one of our great mastermind leaders, and her help and support is superb, and her “meetings” are the best in the group i would have to say. Very structured, controlled, and very very focussed.

    She is so good, that Mandy may well be the “go to” person regarding training of new leaders in the group.

    For me, it is a great bonus for us in The Networking Superstars that you joined, and share your knowledge so freely!

    So thank you for making that decision in 2012!

    Bring on (the rest of) 2013!

      Wow, Jon, thanks! I am humbled by your reply. Must admit that I had to fish this out of spam comments, not quite sure why you ended up there and it’s a good job I check them from time to time or I would never have been able to have that glowing feeling inside that this reply has given me. I might just have to share it with the world! Glad you have benefitted from my team leadership and hope to work a lot more with you in the future.

      Enjoy the journey.

      Mandy

        Hi Mandy

        Remember the TV show, “CatchPhrase”?

        And what the presenter always said? “Say what you see now!”

        So, just simple reporting!

        The other thing that has stuck with me, hard to do,but stuck is some training I had to conduct while being a petrol station manager. It was Shell trainings, and they were trying to get the service level up from the usual UK standard at the time…. Bloke, very board, smoking, reading a paper, acting as if you were disturbing him, just because you wanted to pay…..

        The training was Positive Strokes.

        The idea was to CATCH employees doing something RIGHT, and PRAISING them in public… As opposed to times when they may need telling off, which should always be done in private..

        Such a simple flip, spot something good done right, and proclaim it to the world!

        So at times, I remember, and do!

        I also think goal I wrote a post about this concept, called “Different Stroke” I believe…..

        Jon

        Re spamtrap -that will be because you send any comments to with a url in to the bin! I often put a url in my comment tagilne…. For blogs that do not look up with Comments the Luv correctly.. And is a habit!

        Maybe worth dropping… If others are just spamming the comments too…
